Hello timu12, I don't know what e-client status is. Do you mean the Client Application Status section in the CIC website? I gave my file number in the CIC website and it still shows that "We started processing your application on May 28, 2008". Is this what you referred to as e-client status? I have another question for you. Does every single case gets transferred to local before undergoing the IA? thanks for your help timu12 and good luck to you and others who are in this forum.

not at all. buffalo doesnt transfer all these skilled worker cases. sometimes they do to reduct their workload in order to speed up the process. hopefully u will be hearing from buffalo very soon. processing time is extremely hard to predict at this point.

Thanks for your response timu12. I have another question for you. Is it true that IA is being done for only those folks who have arranged employment in Canada? I am in the US under H1 and I don't have arranged employment in Canada. I am worried. Request your thoughts timu12.

maybe this year only,man! 1st, ministerial instruction hasnt been released yet. 2nd, to all post-feb 27 applicants, it takes while for buffalo to see who is ,and who is not eligible to apply. 3rd, because implementation of Candadian Experience Class, Provincial Nominee, quota left for Federal skilled worker class will mostly go to those whoever has some sortda arranged employment in Canada. so, now u can it will become more and more difficult to immigrate to canada if u have none canadian connection whatsoever

Hey Prdespo,
How do you know when you got your Initial Assessment is done? I filed about the same time and till now I got nothing back from Buffalo. I look up on cic site for online status and it bring the same message "We started processing your application on May 29, 2008".
Can you help me understand what these dates mean? Also, does "Application Filed" date mean the date i posted the application or May 29 in this case?
Appreciate your input.

Hey gocool301

Here are the answers to your queries - I received a letter from the CIC stating that my initial assessment has been done and my interview is waived along with the medical forms. CIC site never gets updated. So don't depend on that. Application Filed date is the date that you filed your application and that is different from your AOR date. But I see that your filing date is Feb 28 which is falling under the new immigration guidelines. Did you check whether you are falling under the new list that the ministry has published? That may give a clue on why your case is getting delayed. Hope that you hear something positive from the CIC soon!
